Abstract

The morbidity and mortality of cholangiocarcinoma have been rising yearly. However, conventional therapies still cannot achieve a satisfactory survival rate. Furthermore, there is an urgent need to discover new approaches to overcome chemotherapeutic drug resistance of cholangiocarcinoma. Considering the unique advantage of magnetic irradiation, we hypothesize that percutaneous injection of chemotherapeutic drugs in the guidance of nuclear magnetic resonance imaging may enhance the survival rate of cholangiocarcinoma without increasing undesired side effects.
